PCT Sierras, PCT Thru Hike / 06.09.2018

At mile 912.2. Hiked 16.2 miles today. Today I had easy trail the entire day. The trail surface was smooth and the slope gradual. After 10 miles I was in Reds Meadow where I went directly to the General Store to buy a beer, then to the cafe to order a double cheeseburger to have with my Sierra Pale Ale.  Needing only one breakfast and one dinner, I resupplied from the hiker box. I just finished eating the chicken and rice dinner that I had chosen and it turned out...

PCT Sierras, PCT Thru Hike / 05.09.2018

At mile 896. Hiked 17.3 miles today plus 1.5 miles to return to PCT via Edison Ferry trail. Everyone exiting the Edison Ferry after a good time at VVR. Now, Hike! The trail toward Silver Pass. A lot of vertical from VVR. Clouds, but no rain. View from Silver Pass. I think that might be Ritter Peak in Ansel Adams Wilderness. Lake and clouds. I don’t want a weather repeat. My down vest is stuffed in dry sack this time. My campsite for the night. Big day tomorrow at Reds Meadow. Hot meal, resupply and hike out...

One of them had hiked the SO CAL portion of the PCT last year.  Another view of the same lake. The first lake north of Selden...

PCT Sierras, PCT Thru Hike / 03.09.2018

At mile 857.7. Hiked 18.9 miles today plus 1.5 miles to Muir Ranch. At Muir Trail Ranch they have 5 gallon buckets labeled for each type of food and other non-food categories. I went down the line selecting the food I needed. I grabbed several Mountain House scrambled egg dinners. I’ll have a break from oatmeal the next several days. I provisioned enough to get me to Reds Meadow. All free. After resupply I walked to the camping area for hikers alongside the San Joaquin River. A rope is suspended...
